Years ago an impression in my mind was I am the desert. The impression was very powerful and I knew it was true. Since moving to Arizona in 2016, this scripture from Isaiah has come to my mind hundreds of times:
- “The wilderness and the solitary place shall be glad for them; and the desert shall rejoice, and blossom as the rose. It shall blossom abundantly, and rejoice even with joy and singing:”
My latest trial causes a desert in me in that my body isn’t nourished but is parched and dry. According to the above scripture I could say that one day my body will blossom abundantly like a rose and cause me to rejoice with joy and singing.
